Yes I would guess so, even though it *looks* strange the first time you 
look at this schema.

Please don't take me as an absolute reference :))) !

Time to fill a couple of bugs :) ...

Actually this is a very interesting test case since:

"The ur-type definition, whose name is anyType, has the unique 
characteristic that it can function as a complex or a simple type 
definition, according to context. Specifically, ·restrictions· of the 
ur-type definition can themselves be either simple or complex type 

and the since the derivation by restriction of simple and complex types 
use the same xs:restriction element with a different semantic and it's 
probably a nightmare to implement when a type is both simple and complex...

See you in Paris.
